Crafty Creations and Delightful Challenges


The challenge this week at Crafty Creations is "Christmas is Coming" and at Delightful Challenges they want to see our red and green cards. I am sharing a card I made using an origami tree that I learned to make from my friend Phyllis. Here is a tutorial if you want to make one yourself. I had so much fun making them, you will see a bunch more cards with them here before Christmas. You use thin paper so any wrapping paper would do or in this case I used some lightweight two sided embossed green sparkly paper. After I put the tree together I added some red gems to decorate it. I attached it to a white background piece embossed with snowflakes (Cuttlebug) and I added the perfect sentiment from Verve.
